It’s no secret that a huge amount of our time was spent at the Funko booth during Toy Fair 2016. Funko has grown a lot in 2015 and it’s just hard to keep up sometimes. From Pop! to Vinyl Sugar, Funko is expanding once again with new figurine lines as well as apparel and housewares. Today I felt that we should check out the absolutely adorable ladies of Funko’s latest line: Rock Candy.
The Rock Candy line expands upon Funko’s vinyl figurines that were announced last year and the first wave will feature DC Comics heroines & villains, as well as a new and exciting partnership with Barbie®. Each figure is 5-inches tall and comes with a removable base!
“Rock Candy received an overwhelming amount of praise during New York Toy Fair“‡ with their sweeter side. The ladies of Rock Candy are not overtly sexualized figures. This might be why most people instantly gravitated towards the line. Often times, whenever we see DC heroines and villains it’s almost always in sexy poses and clothes. Additionally, it’s not often that we see Barbie® figures created by anyone other than Mattel. The entire first wave of the toy line is utterly adorable and refreshing.
Rock Candy: DC Comics and Rock Candy: Batman v Superman vinyl figures will be available in May 2016.
Rock Candy: Barbie™ will be available in July 2016.
